Vinson & Elkins adds partner to London private equity practice


Corporate lawyer Paul Dunbar, whose practice focuses primarily on private equity and special situations funds, has joined Vinson & Elkins as a partner in the firm's London office.

Dunbar was previously a partner at Cadwalader, Wickersham & Taft LLP in London.
 
"Growing our London private equity practice is a key element of the firm's strategy, and Paul fits in perfectly with our team and culture," says Keith Fullenweider, co-head of the Firm's M&A and Capital Markets Practice.
 
"Paul's experience is an excellent complement to our thriving private equity practice in London," adds Jeff Eldredge, International Coordinator for the firm's Europe, Middle East and Africa practice. "His strong relationships with many of our existing clients and outstanding transactional skills will allow him to make an immediate impact."
 
Dunbar acts on behalf of private equity and special situations funds, as well as activist and event driven funds and corporate clients, on M&A and special situations transactions, including public and private M&A, corporate governance, joint ventures, minority equity and debt investments, loan-to-own restructurings and portfolio acquisitions. He also advises fund clients on certain regulatory matters.
"With so many clients in common, I've had the opportunity to get to know many of the exemplary lawyers at V&E, so the decision to join the firm made perfect sense for my practice," Dunbar says. "I'm extremely excited to help grow this vibrant private equity practice, both in the UK and globally."
Dunbar graduated from Oxford University and is admitted to the roll of solicitors of England and Wales.
 
"We are very pleased to welcome Paul to V&E at a time when the focus on London has never been stronger," says London office managing partner Alex Msimang. "From moving into our brand new office space earlier this week to enhancing our corporate group capabilities, we look forward to building on this momentum."
